Thanksgiving Painted Rocks
Painted rocks are fun to create and hide around town. We love playing with them as DIY toys as well, especially in our sensory bins that we like to make seasonally.
What you need for the Thanksgiving painted rocks:
To Paint the Thanksgiving Rocks:
Sketch a rough drawing on the flat painted rocks. I like to use a pencil, but a white colored pencil can be easier to see for your sketch. Paint pens should go right over the sketch.
Paint the drawing in with a base color. If you want a varied color, use two different pens while the paint is still wet so that they blend together, creating a multi-dimensional color, similar to how I painted the bread below.
Here are each of the rocks that we added to this set of Thanksgiving painted rocks to practice Thanksgiving dinner with. Also, check out how cute these apple painted rocks are, they would be a nice addition to this set too.
Turkey Painted Rock
Make a basic turkey shape and paint brown. Add some white at the tip of the drumstick, then when dry, outline the entire turkey, drawing the drumstick as well.
Corn Painted Rock
Paint the husk green, and the cob yellow. Once dry, outline the shapes with black and draw some cross-hatch lines on the corn cob.
Pie Painted Rock
Paint a large triangle orange and a crust in yellow. Once dry, use a black marker to outline and create dimension.
Bread Painted Rock
Fill in the oval with yellow, then some brown, and more yellow on top to blend the color. Once dry, use brown to draw the lines on top of the bread, and a black marker to outline.
Pumpkin Painted Rock
Create the pumpkin shape in orange and paint the stem green. Once dry, outline with black and draw lines on the pumpkin to give it shape and dimension.
Cranberries Painted Rock
I placed the cranberries in a bowl to help them look like cranberries. The blue of the bowl really helped the berries pop. Above the bowl, paint small red circles in a pile. Once dry, outline with black.
Once all of the painted rocks are dry, seal with a spray acrylic sealer, then you can play with them or hide outside!
These Thanksgiving painted rocks are so simple to create and so much fun to play with. We added them to a Thanksgiving sensory bin, pretended to eat Thanksgiving dinner, and even played a matching game by reading the name of the rock and matching the corresponding food. How fun would it be to make a set of these Fall gnome painted rocks to join in the Thanksgiving feast?!
Have so much fun creating these Thanksgiving painted rocks! We would love to hear how you choose to play with them.
